Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty:  I didn't really have time to think about much because Coach Catlin pushed me through the door and forced me into a workout.  Luckily he did it though because CrossFit is a big part of my life now.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?  I have seen changes in my attitude, my body and I have learned to lift heavy shit :) I have also made some real great friends in the process.  

What are your individual goals?  I want to be able to do multiple strict pull-ups, get a 200# Split Jerk and continue to get stronger and healthier.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  Oh man, this is tough.  I have had so many great times at Ten Twenty.  Some of my favorite moments are when I competed in my first individual competition, getting 175# Split Jerk and all the times my Ten Twenty Fam and I have had rad dance parties.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? The Coaching Staff at Ten Twenty is great!  They are always working on helping you reach your goals.  

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started?  Don't think about it, just do it.  You deserve it!  

Tell us something we don't know about you?  It may seem hard to believe but I was a cheerleader in High School.  

Favorite WOD?  Annie or Grace

Least Favorite WOD?  Even though my nickname is Fran, I would have to say Fran may be be favorite WOD.  I also despise any WOD that has ALL the Burpees.
